i have had an officers frame sitting around for awhile and ive got a couple of questions.will a government or commander size slide work on it? or will the dust cover be to short?and lastly will a para slide work on a non para frame?
I know Kurt is a gunsmith but I don't think he answered your question accurately.
For the Officer's ACP frame you can use a Commander slide (I've done it several times) but not a Government Model slide. Colt's CCO (Concealed Carry Officer's) is a Commander slide on an Officer's frame.
No offence was intended Kurt. I figured you knew about the Officer's and Commander similarities but I wasn't sure "ssshorty" would.
